Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Tag: A Link to the Past

What is the Legend of Zelda to you? Is it simply a game that you enjoy to pass the time with, or is it something more meaningful? Have you been enjoying journeys through Hyrule for most of your life, or have you only recently tried your hand at your first adventure as Link, the hero in green? We all have our stories, playing these games, finding inspiration from them and always wishing for more adventures to enjoy on the latest…

Now here is something you don’t see everyday. During the recently concluded Awesome Games Done Quick 2016 speedrun marathon, a race held for A Link to the Past demonstrated a way of playing you may not have seen before: beating every boss in the reverse order. This obviously involves a lot of glitches and wall clips, so expect the game to be broken beyond belief. The winner finished the race in 1:29:47. Also, an interview was held before the race…

In a recent YouTube video by Zeltic, he listed five things that Zelda U could learn from A Link to the Past. The first point was to make the introduction sequence short and simple. The next point was to have the perfect difficulty that was not so hard that it made you want to throw the controller, but not so easy that you would breeze through it. He felt that the game should have lots of dungeons like A Link…

Music covers in the Zelda fandom are not hard to come by, but I love finding something where someone has put their own creative twist to it. Especially with a tune as awesome as the Dark World theme from A Link to the Past. YouTube user RichaabEB has done just that, giving the theme a rock edge that makes it sound like an action packed montage or an epic fight is taking place. Make the jump to check it out!

ThatOneShowFUN is at it again! Awhile back, a new episode of Eggbusters covered a popular wall-clipping glitch in the SNES classic, and since the video is quite long, and only one glitch was covered, clearly the glitch went rather well. A Link to the Past Any% speedrunners likely know this glitch rather well, as it allows you to beat the game in a good five minutes, but going beyond that and exploring the insides of walls can lead to a…

In the latest installment of Deadlock MatPat and NateWantstoBattle decided to debate which Zelda title was better, Ocarina of Time or A Link to the Past. MatPat decided to choose the side of A Link to the Past and Nate took the side of Ocarina of Time. In this video they explore the conventions and game play of the two games, comparing and contrasting the two. The video seems to raise some questions about Zelda games, for example should Zelda…

Your journey’s throughout the Zelda titles have mostly taken place in the Light World already, as it’s just simply Hyrule.  However, in a few Zelda titles, there also exists a Dark World (but I’m pretty sure you guys knew that already).  The Dark World belongs mostly to A Link To The Past, where Link travels between the Light and Dark World in order to complete certain objectives.  Both worlds have their own fitting theme, with altered terrain and music that very…

Being possibly the most famous band of all time, it is surprising that the greatest hits of The Beatles are not more prominently used on the internet for fun videos like this. larryinc64 on YouTube has recreated The Beatles “Eleanor Rigby” in a 16-bit style, modeled after the sounds of A Link to the Past, and it fits quite well. Check out the full video after the jump!

You better enjoy this one while it lasts, because you’ll only be able to view it until September 2015. Using the jadsdsengine, fan (who is unnamed) has recreated the entire world of A Link to the Past in full sized map form… with a twist – it’s fully animated…

GameChops, a video game remix label, has released this awesome song on their Youtube channel. Dj Cutman teams up with Portland-based producer collective Team Banzai for a dark and beat-heavy remix of A Link To The Past‘s boss BGM music theme.

This is actually the second track…
